Janet, your laugh, always heard in a crowd, notified us that you were in the room.
It was a sound that made all of us smile, and then search you out to see what story was
entertaining you at that moment! Never a dull second when in your company.
Colourful, caring and endearing to all who knew you. I am sorry you had to leave us.
Software Specialists, Technicians and Customers all loved you. The light you brought
to us every day was a gift. It was a pleasure to know you.
My condolences to all.

Janet and I worked together for several years. She was a formidable force and I had great respect for her. She always made me laugh and I appreciated her sense of humour and her honesty. Although I had not seen or spoke with her in several years I imagine she brought joy to many including her family and friends. My deepest condolences to her family.
